Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Vegan diets are an increasingly popular consumer choice, but guidance for health care professionals who discuss diet with patients is lacking. This chapter describes different types of vegan eating patterns, and the relative pros and cons of vegan eating along with potential health benefits and health risks. The provided information helps health care professionals give appropriate advice to patients who are following a vegan diet or considering doing so, to help them embrace the benefits of this dietary pattern without health risks.
